Sauvignon Blanc

(aka. Blanc Fume, Fume Blanc, Savagnin Musque)

Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California -- at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety -- and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’.

When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, it is one of the wine world’s darlings.

  • Alphonse Mellot Sancerre 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The Edmond opened with a subtle nose (a bit closed, perhaps, a bit young). It finished with refined acidity. But having been open for a couple of hours and warming gradually it started to become riper and juicier on the palate. A superb Savignon Blanc, elegant from start to finish. Read More
